With the advent of 5G , the way we communicate will change, even with Xiaomi smartphones based on MIUI 12.5 . To date we are still far from being able to define it as concrete in our lives, given that the diffusion of the infrastructure in Italy is far from being sufficiently widespread. But in the meantime, the various smartphone manufacturers are preparing to prepare smartphones to be able to test the benefits of next-generation networks.

The MIUI 12.5 update introduces VoNR calls on Xiaomi

Introduced by Huawei with the P40 family , VoNR technology is one of the various bonuses that 5G support brings with it and which is now also coming to Xiaomi. The acronym stands for Voice over New Radio, but it is also referred to as Vo5G and is basically the next-gen version of VoLTE based on 4G. In a world where 2G and 3G networks are about to fall into disuse, video calls will begin to be able to be conveyed by 5G frequencies. Without getting too technical, the result will be better audio / video quality and an increasingly reduced lag.
